Unable to load windows with Display drivers...Need help!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone. I'm going insane trying to figure out what is causing my issue.

So yesterday I was watching a movie, system was running great and suddenly my screen goes black and my system stops responding, attempted to reboot without success. So I reseated my GPU's and booted, still no dice. I changed out GPU1 for GPU2 and rebooted. System now boots with a image but when I enter the login screen it goes black and system turns unresponsive.

I did a few things from here.

Rebooted in safe mode ran a virus scan and no issue
Rebooted with safe mode and ran drivesweeper and cleaned out all old drivers
rebooted with safe mode + network and installed latest drivers
Rebooted normally and black screen returns axesmiley.png
rebooted safe mode + network Wiped drivers again, checked regisitry, cleaned regisitry, opimized it, installed Nvidia drivers from a few months ago. Reboot Still black screen madsmiley.png

Rebooted with safe mode + network, used msconfig to disable all startup applications. Rebooted, still no dice.

Tried using a restore point from a week ago, and still can't get a login screen when I have Display drivers installed. axesmiley.png

HELP! I've done everything I can friggin think of, and I still can't get this system running. About to wipe the drive, but I really really don't want to do that.

P.S. Disabled all my OC's and still no dice

Make sure monitor is properly connected and/or try a different monitor.

That would be logical if I had no image at all. However I have image in safe mode, please read before you comment as that was a waste of time when I was hoping someone had a real response.

Have you ever had a malfunctioning monitor before? I guess you haven't. they can work for a few seconds (have an image) and then go black/dark. thumb.gif

And once again, it works perfectly fine in Safemode, which is what I've been typing from, so that would be one heck of a malfunction to ONLY happen during a none safemode boot, but work perfectly fine for countless hours in safemode + networking. So no, your point is still not valid. Please move along unless you've got something logical to add, as I'm not in the mood to argue over silly ideas.

I had a similar issue but mine was after a fresh install I tried to load drivers and the pc had a black screen and then reboot. Found out it was my psu that one of the 4 pins to the cpu vrm went bad. This could be the culprit. Or even the 24 pin came loose. Others would try to argue ram could have gone bad. But you boot into safe mode. And it cant be the 24 pin cause you can boot into safe mode.

My conclusion if it has to do with the psu its COULD be the 4/8 pin to either cpu or card has a short maybe. Cause I found that running the card in safe mode doesnt draw power and runs basic functions. And same goes with the CPU 4/8 pin, as it only draws power from 1 of the 4/8 pins.

The only real way to find out whats bad is to do process of elimination. By changing parts out if you have them available.



Edit: I have looked up your PSU you have in your sig. And I am finding nothing but bad reviews. This more so points to my hypothesis of that the psu could be the culprit.

Thanks for the good information. That's the kinda info I've come to love about this site. Helpful and informative.

I also believe it's a PSU and Mobo issue. My top PCI-E slot seems to be the malfunction. Combine that with the PSU and that might explain my Z68 Extreme 3 gen3 dying in a few months, and this latest issue of a bad PCI-E slot.

WIll buy a new Mobo later in the week. To busy with work to swing into Tokyo, so sadly will have to wait to finalize this fix till the weekend.
